MHS Halloween Costume Guidelines

This year, MHS will allow the wearing of costumes to school on Halloween!  In order to make the day a success, we want to go over a few guidelines.

Most importantly, all costumes must be school appropriate.

Please follow the school dress code.  The only exceptions to the usual rules are that hats, face paint, and other small accessories will be allowed on this day.  All students participating must come to school dressed in their costumes -- no getting ready in the building.  Therefore, students should not bring makeup or hair products to school.

Basic Costume Don'ts:

  1. Costumes may not have parts that interfere with learning.  This means no masks or costumes that restrict movement or vision, prevent sitting at desks, or prevent participation in physical education class.   Costumes must not obstruct movement in the hallways.
  2. Costumes may not be violent or suggestive.  
  3. Costumes may not promote violence or controlled substances or have accessories or props that could be used as a weapon.

Please remember that this is still a school day.  Students are expected to fully participate in each class throughout the day.   Students should bring a change of clothing, in case their costume is deemed inappropriate by the administration or becomes distracting to the learning process.  We are looking forward to everyone following the guidelines, coming up with creative costumes, and having fun!
